    You mean that when Trump said "it's rigged" he might have been telling the truth, just twisting which side he was suggesting was doing the rigging?

    "Michelle Obama is fixed on keeping her daughters on a normal school schedule.


    A person close to the Obamas says they have also considered allowing them to finish up the academic year in Chicago.


    A long column of black Secret Service SUVs and police cars pulled up on the University of Chicago’s Midway, with a bus of journalists in tow. It was the president-elect dropping his daughters off. Barack Obama walked his charges through the school, and lingered a bit to talk with some fourth-graders. It was an electrifying experience, one student reported, but it wasn’t his first encounter with the Obamas, who are regulars at school functions.


    Others express concerns about the heightened security and media presence at the school. “It’s been exciting,” said one fifth-grader, “but twice last week I had to fight my way past the reporters to get in to school. And we’re all a little concerned about the Secret Service agents. Is it true they carry Uzis?” Another student said he and his father were blocked from entering the school by nervous Secret Service agents, who tried to clear the area in front of the building for the new first family."


    http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2008/11/13/will-the-obama-kids-stay-in-chicago-with-grandma.html



    Back in 2008 it was “electrifying”. Obama’s considered leaving their kids in Chicago to finish the school year. No one batted an eye back then.

    The Obamas opted to all move to DC when he was sworn in. Maybe they considered the logistics, cost and other issues--maybe they decided it was important for them to be under the same roof as much as possible.

    It is estimated that the cost to taxpayers would be an additional $1-million a day for wife and son to continue living in NYC--about $150-million for 5 months--besides being a logistical nightmare for the tenants and other dwellers of Trump Towers.

    Children, literally hundreds of thousands if not millions have to change schools during the school year when parents relocate.

    And others like to have their children finish the year out at their present school. It's a parental decision not a taxpayer decision, or in this case a poster's decision.

    I agree, it is a parent's decision. Generally though, taxpayers aren't billed for nor do others suffer the consequences of the parent's decision. I guess it speaks to one's character and or selfishness.

    Yes, in this particular case I can understand you saying "it speaks one's character and or selfishness". Has noting to do with the child, right?

    I am not sure I understand your question...I was not referring to the character and/or selfishness of the child. It would be human nature for a child not to want to leave his school and friends and I would not in any way hold that against a child nor would I hold him responsible for making the best decision under the given circumstances. It is the parent's responsibility to make the hard and best decisions considering the circumstances and consequences--it is their character and/or selfishness that will be exposed.

    Since you hate trump I assume you were speaking only of trump and his "character and or selfishness". Which has nothing to do with a deciosion made by the parents to leave the child in school to finish out the year.

    I don't hate Trump, the person...I hate the hateful, the lying and the stupid things he has done and said; I hate that he and others thought that a person with his mental and emotional makeup would make a good president; I hate that he will, IMO, always put self-interest above what is good for our populous. I hate most of all that he was elected to be the leader of our country and the danger and ridiculousness that could entail. I hate that his candidacy legitimized, in many people's minds, that bigotry, meanness, and hatefulness against others is okay and something to be emulated.

    And yes, it will be his and his wife's character that will influence a decision that will cause far-reaching hassles and consequences and make life difficult and miserable for a great number of people, over at least five months, after he is sworn in as POTUS. If will either be their good and decent character or lack thereof that will cause them to put their own self-interest above that which is best for the masses in their area of the world. People are either part of the solution or the part of the problem, we'll see which Trump will become and it will set the course and tell us how he will govern.

    https://www.washingtonpost.com/poste...=.ac4b1b8ac8dd

    Life for New Yorkers will change. Whenever a president moves, everything nearby freezes.
    ...

    If so, his home, in the penthouse of Trump Tower, on W. 56th Street and Fifth Avenue, will be the epicenter of an iron curtain that will wall off much of Midtown from the rest of the city. Creating a permanent, sterile environment inside a 58-story, multi-occupancy building on one of the busiest streets in one of the busiest cities in the world poses an unprecedented challenge for the Secret Service and the military.

    No city on Earth is better prepared to host a presidential visit than New York: The police department works seamlessly with the Secret Service these days, and Manhattanites are used to traffic jams. But to accommodate a more regular presidential presence, the daily routines of ordinary New Yorkers who live in, work near or commute through a five- to 10-block radius of Trump Tower will change. They will not be able to move freely; sometimes they won’t be able to move at all. Whenever a president moves, everything nearby freezes.
    ...

    Consider the disruption that a routine, half-day presidential visit can have on New York. On May 30, 2009, President Obama fulfilled a campaign promise to take the first lady to the city for a date: just an intimate dinner in the Village and an August Wilson play on Broadway. The planning began in secret about nine days before the trip, one of the staffers involved told me. A Secret Service agent accompanied a presidential advance-team volunteer to the theater and asked the manager for four tickets — two for VIPs, two for Secret Service agents. Near an exit. “And who would these be for?” the manager asked. “We can’t tell you,” came the apologetic reply.

    When the big night arrived, word had gotten out, and the NYPD shut down 44th Street for hours, snarling traffic. The Obamas arrived right on time, but a glitch in screening theatergoers through magnetometers meant that entry lines were long and slow. So the president had to wait outside in the rear while agents checked the remaining audience members for weapons.

    In the end, the trip took three airplanes , three helicopters, about 100 federal security agents and dozens of police officers accruing overtime. It required secure telephones in secure rooms inside the theater and the restaurant. All for a night out.

    So what about a regular presidential presence?

    Start with the epicenter: Completed in 1983, the glass-enclosed Trump Tower was designed before New York became a prime target for terrorist threats. It’s a sturdy building, but it wasn’t constructed with security in mind.

    From now until the end of Trump’s presidency, everyone who enters and exits the building will have to be vetted by the Secret Service, even if the Trumps aren’t there. At the very least, their names will be run through agency threat databases. The service will want to inspect every package that goes into the building and will insist that staffers — at every shop, restaurant and residence — be scanned with a hand-held magnetometer, which detects hidden metal. When Trump is there, all of their personal effects will probably be checked by bomb-detection dogs, too.

    Trump’s office is about 30 floors below his apartment. In between and below are residences and offices owned or leased by other people, who have rights that the city and state of New York are obligated to enforce. (For instance, the federal government can’t evict or move tenants at will.) Celebrities such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Bruce Willis, who keep apartments in the building, will find themselves living in Trump’s bubble.

    The Secret Service has a special unit that will defend Trump Tower’s electronic and cyber architecture from electronic attack. Occupants might have to surrender some privacy as agents look to monitor incoming phone calls and even Internet traffic. The White House Communications Agency will build a separate, air-gapped Internet to carry classified information inside the intranet of Trump Tower, and the White House Military Office (WHMO) will provide Trump’s residence and office with an uninterrupted supply of power. Can the building handle the infrastructure without displacing others? Can the penthouse windows handle up-armoring?

    The WHMO will require significant new space of its own somewhere in the building. That means it will pay rent to its landlord — that is, to Trump, if the agency uses space that the Trump Organization owns. This would not be unprecedented; Vice President Biden charged the Secret Service to occupy a building on his property in Delaware. Government rules prevent the agency from accepting anything of significant value from a protectee, and land has value. During the campaign, Trump was able to recoup $1.6 million from the Secret Service because he flew on his own planes, and the agents, just like everyone else, had to pay for their seats.

    Trump will need his own Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility at Trump Tower, so he can openly and safely discuss national security matters. The WHMO’s Presidential Contingency Programs Office, which supervises the highly secret continuity-of-the-presidency and continuity-of-government schemes, will probably have to revise its playbooks for catastrophic emergencies. While Trump is in residence, a helicopter has to be stationed somewhere close by so he can be quickly evacuated from Manhattan, and at least one airplane will always have to be kept fueled, on standby, waiting to take the president to a military base in the event of a crisis. Safe houses need to be opened, maintained and kept secret.

    A contingent from the Uniformed Division of the Secret Service might have to move to New York to maintain the outer perimeter, and so might technicians who will protect the building’s air supply from a chemical or radiological attack. The service has a number of heavily armored cars and electronic counter-measure vans in a warehouse somewhere in the city, but it could decide that it wants Marines from HMX-1, the squadron that flies the president’s helicopters, to move up from Virginia full time.

    A single presidential visit costs the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, which runs the city’s airports, $100,000 to pull off. With repeated, regular trips, price tags, delays and frustrations will scale up, quickly. When Air Force One — which costs about $236,000 per hour to fly when fully loaded with pilots, passengers, security, gear and fuel — arrives at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport, the tarmac will be frozen for at least 15 minutes before it lands. That short delay will reverberate through the extremely crowded airspace over New York. And whenever Trump travels, hundreds of people will move with him. The NYPD will be on the hook for hundreds of hours’ worth of overtime each week.

    Thanks to the barricades and blockages around Trump Tower, local businesses are already reeling from a mini-Trump recession. Henri Bendel, across the street from Trump Tower, shut its doors mid-afternoon at least twice this past week; there was not enough foot traffic to justify keeping the store open. The manager of Obicà, a fancy Italian restaurant in the IBM building, at 56th Street and Madison Avenue, told CBS News that sales were already suffering from the pre-inauguration traffic closures put in place by the police. Traffic in Midtown is always intense. It will get much worse.

    Tourists, too, will find their experience of New York altered by the presence of a president. Weekend helicopter tours of the city are probably now a pleasure of the past. A temporary flight ban, instituted right after the election, will become permanent and will expand.
    ...

    Never before has a president lived among other people on weekends. All decompress from time to time at their getaway spots, but these places have been discrete entities that could be secured without disrupting the lives of too many people around them. Richard Nixon’s beloved estate in San Clemente, Calif., was surrounded by about six acres of land in a gated community. The Kennedy compound in Palm Beach, Fla., bordered an ocean, which necessitated the presence of the Navy and Coast Guard, but otherwise it did not need an expanded security perimeter.

    The Obamas spent most of their weekends in Washington. When the president wanted to get out of his prison, he would golf on a nearby military base, minimizing the disruption. Biden spent most of his weekends at home in Wilmington, Del. He took the Acela. So seamlessly did the Secret Service and Amtrak work together on security plans that unless you knew what to look for, you could take the train with the vice president and not know it.

    Being commander in chief is difficult, so presidents need a respite. We can give Trump a break for wanting to go home, but he can give New Yorkers a break by acknowledging that his presence will require them to sacrifice on his behalf. Radio host Howard Stern, who broadcasts from the studios of Sirius Satellite Radio near Trump Tower, started his show Wednesday by quipping that, for New Yorkers, “it would be a lot easier for Trump to stay away from his apartment.” Stern said that his even driver, Ronnie Mund, who proudly voted for Trump, complained: “How the hell are you gonna get anywhere?”

    It's very strange and unusual that liberals would now start to complain about government spending. Under obama who has doubled the debt while in office liberals wanted to spend more. Now because a a parental decision to keep their child in school for the remainder of the school year (4-5 mos) they complain about spending 150 million. Obama spent 10 trillion give or take.

    I know you aren't ignorant of the fact that he inherited two unfunded wars and huge tax cuts that we could not afford...and the experts have predicted that Trump's plan will outspend Obama by leaps and bounds...as a fiscal conservative, are you not concerned?

    What about the disruption to people's everyday lives for months? What about the business losses for those in the affected area for months on end and the loss of income to them and their employees?

    trump should just go ahead and sell trump towers to obama and the DNC. obama could move there and everything would be fine in NYC. And of course change the name of the building.

    C'mon! That history is one person who we all I think can agree is a idiot.

    The link that I posted shows a whole cadre of very dangerous folks who have been working at this for a very long time.
